Joe Kennedy update: endorsed by RightMarch PAC; first TV debate now online

Independent Libertarian Joe Kennedy endorsed by RightMarch PAC in the Massachusetts US Senate Special election:

Joseph Kennedy for U.S. Senate – Massachusetts
Like Doug Hoffman in New York, Joe Kennedy is running as an Independent, rather than Republican or Democrat. The reason is simple: The Democrat nominee is far-left liberal, and the Republican nominee isn’t far behind. Unlike the Kennedy (Ted) who recently held this seat — and unlike EITHER of the other two candidates — JOE Kennedy believes in limited government, lower taxes, balanced budgets, Constitutional law and individual liberties. We almost won in New York — help us win BIG in Massachusetts, with a GOOD Kennedy!

    I watched about 20 min. of the debate. I saw a B+ 😉 performance there, perhaps an A-, esp in light of the fact that Kennedy is a neophyte. Keep up the good work, Joe!

    I’d think our radical brothers and sisters would NOT like Joe’s performance. I would agree that he was playing it safe to the point of being bland and defensive.

    I suggest he consider using opportunity to contrast the failed policies of BOTH the Rs and Ds. Rather than getting bogged down in minutiae, as he tends to do, IMO, have some talking points on the major issues that he can show how R and D “solutions” fail. Do this crisply, with no equivocation!

    Keep it up, Joe!!!

    I was not impressed with Kennedy. A true Libertarian should stand out from the two liberals. He blew the very first question on health care. I could not tell what he stood for.

    I can’t fault Joe. He’s doing the best he can with limited help. The problem regarding the lack of detailed information is ours not his. We need to step up and build a clearing house for information on the issues on the web. Frankly I have neither the time nor the skills to do so but am willing to help provide some of the information if others are interested.

    Regarding the tort issue here are some of the latest numbers on medical errors which I posted under another entry yesterday.

    “An average of 195,000 people in the USA died due to potentially preventable, in-hospital medical errors in each of the years 2000, 2001 and 2002, according to a new study of 37 million patient records that was released today by HealthGrades, the healthcare quality company.”
    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/11856.php

    “Preventable medical mistakes and infections are responsible for about 200,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, according to an investigation by the Hearst media corporation. The report comes 10 years after the Institute of Medicine’s “To Err Is Human” analysis, which found that 44,000 to 98,000 people were dying annually due to these errors…”

    And here is some info on midwives. This suggest that many states including Massachusetts could do with more midwives and need to look at the regs that make it difficult for them to practice.

    The map at this url shows the percentage of births by midwives in each state across the nation http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5504a7.htm. Midwives have outcomes that generally are as good if not better than doctors and at lower costs. Some nations in Europe midwives are the primary source of care for expectant mothers with 30% or more births.
